I used the ppa:gma500/ppa repository as described in
There is lot of green in the table the real situation for this driver is
not as excellent/good. Or if it is "good" then as comparison Nvidia
binary driver quality is superior and high above the scale... I have had
problems with Nvidia drivers but they have been solved/mitigated to
usable level. Even if closed binary drivers are generally bad there are
poor and usable examples.

I fully agree. If I knew this Intel chipset had only closed binary
drivers I would have bought my kids another netbook. I bet there will be
problems with new X.org and next Ubuntu problems.
